When we were first approached to photograph for First For Women we had no clue how amazing this portrait session would end up being. We arrived in Glen Arbor as Liz was finishing up hair and makeup by Brenda from On-Site Bridal. Liz was being photographed to be featured in the July 2016 issue of First For Women because of her amazing weight loss story. As Liz was being pampered she told us about how she made simple changes like adjusting what she ate and how she gradually got more into fitness. Now Liz works as a personal trainer at the gym that helped her achieve her own goals, Glen Arbor Fitness.
We started the session behind the gym and eventually made our way to the nearby Glen Lake with the Sleeping Bear sand dunes in the background. Liz’s excitement and energy was contagious! She was so ecstatic to be featured in a nationally published magazine. And even though First For Women magazine only need a few images we loved hanging out with Liz and we kept on photographing her.
It was a great session and now you can see the images on the COVER (pinch us) and inside of First For Women magazine! We are so proud of Liz and love that First For Women is featuring her empowering story. Go pick up a copy anywhere in the United States.
Thanks again to Brenda from On-Site Bridal for the beautiful hair & makeup and for also tagging along that morning for retouches. Also, thanks to Liz for all the inspiration and for letting us photograph such a gorgeous gal (inside and out). Check out below for more pictures and a behind the scenes look at the session. Enjoy!
